Dear Peter: How does it feel to have been on these adventures? – Zack, USA

Sir Tode always says that adventures are never fun when you’re in the middle of them. But having been on an adventure feels fantastic!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you think Mr.Cake is going to make Sophie and you are going to have to work together in more trips? – Sophia, TX

Professor Cake sent us off on more adventures–including one bigger than the rest combined! Someday, maybe I’ll tell you about it …

– Peter


Dear Peter: Would you date Sophie? – Gracie, MI

NEXT QUESTION

– Peter


Dear Peter: If you had the choice would you want to meet your REAL parents or never meet them at all? – Emery, TX

Some days I feel like I would give anything just to see them one time. But then I remember that if I hadn’t grown up without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today!

– Peter


Dear Peter: If you had the choice would you want your eyes back? – Kelani, Canada

That’s a complicated question–my blindness feels like a part of who I am. The only person I’ve ever really talked about it to was Sophie Quire.

– Peter


Dear Peter: How did you know which eyes to put in first? What if you put in the emerald eyes? – Alice, TX

I just had a *feeling* that the gold pair were the ones to try. If I had put the emerald eyes in first, I never would have made it to Professor Cake’s island!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you miss your right hand? Or does it affect your thievery or life in general in any sort of way? – Isabelle, ON

My Silver Hand is bad for thievery but GREAT for sword fights! I’d say it’s an even trade.

– Peter


Are you dating anyone?(Sophie Quire) – Joe, MN

Next question!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Are you going to go on another adventure after you rescued Sophie Quire? – Bill, PA
While I’d love to sit back and relax, Professor Cake has different plans in mind!
– Peter

Dear Peter: Did you ever find out that Sir Tode was just a shepard? – Adelaide, MA

He did tell me about that. I told him that who he was in the past does not control who he can become.

– Peter


Dear Peter: Is Hazelport big? – Brennan, MI

At first I thought HazelPort was enormous, but once I spent more time there, it began to feel too small.

– Peter


Dear Peter: What was the scariest part of your trip with Sir Tode? – Brennan, MI

The scariest part was thinking I’d left Sir Tode behind in the Just Deserts.

– Peter


Dear Peter: What did you like doing more: Saving HazelPort or helping Sophie Quire? – Taylor, CAN

Well, I *thought* rescuing Sophie was going to be fun … but it turned out that SHE was the one who rescued ME!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you like stealing items? – Sarah, CA

Will you think less of me if I say “yes?”

– Peter


Dear Peter: How come you didn’t use the other fantastic eyes in Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard? – Nathaniel, CA

It turned out that once I put in the emerald eyes, they became a part of me. I doubt the other pairs would work for me anymore, even if I could swap them in.

– Peter


Dear Peter: How old are you? – Stacy, HI

I’m the same age as Peg.

– Peter


Dear Peter: Can you give me Peg’s and your address? I would like to write you a letter. – Grace, TX
Unfortunately, regular mail doesn’t travel as far as HazelPort, but you can always send a letter to

Dear Peter: What are six words that would describe Mr.Seamus and his dog killer? – Kay, MA

Really really really really really rotten!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Would you ever consider growing a mustache like Sir Tode’s? – Natalie, CA

Great thieves are also masters of disguise. I’ve worn more than a few mustaches in my career, but they always seem to make people snicker. I’m not sure why.

– Peter


Dear Peter: How do you pick locks and can you ask Mr. Auxier if he remembers me from Asa Low? I was the twin! Both of you are awesome! – Molly, TX

I usually use my long fingers, or lock-picking tools. But more than once, I’ve had to use my toes. Nice to meet a fellow twin!

– Peter


Dear Peter: What do you look like? – Grace, TX

According to Sir Tode, I’m as ugly as a boiled cabbage. But I think he might be biased!

– Peter


Dear Peter: How did Pencil Cookson become an orphan? – Carla, Metro

The rumor that I’ve always heard was that Pencil Cookson killed his own parents in a fit of rage. And if you’d ever met Pencil in person, you’d know it’s probably true!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Does Mr. Seamus have a family other than killer? – Joe, PA

I’m not even sure he considers Killer his family. Really, if I were Seamus’s mother, I’d disown him!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you like Sophie Quire? – Luyiying, Singapore

Ew! Gross!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you sometimes think Sir Tode is annoying? – Ryan, WI

It shames me to say that I sometimes did find him annoying — it wasn’t until I lost Sir Tode in the Just Deserts that I realized just how important he was.

– Peter


Dear Peter: What is this summary of your life, which adventures did you go throughout your WHOLE life? – Claudia, Canada

I can’t tell you what happened in my WHOLE life because I’m still alive!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you have any hobbies besides stealing? – Ryan, WI

While living with Mr Seamus, I didn’t really have time or energy for any hobbies. But I often played the game “guess that smell.”

– Peter


Dear Peter: What did it feel like being a sea monster? – Drew, Redlands CA

After a lifetime of feeling so weak and helpless, it was pretty thrilling to become a mighty monster! Though, I did get a stomach ache from swallowing all that salt water.

– Peter


Dear Peter: What’s your favorite moment on your journey to the the Perfect Palace? – Nadira, San Diego CA

I would say that the days I spent with Sir Tode on Professor Cake’s island were some of the best of my life. I would vige anything to walk along those quiet shores again.

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you ever get second thoughts about leaving Mr. Seamus? – Renee, Redlands CA

My only regret was that I didn’t leave sooner!

– Peter
